    Hi – Within the Vendor Dashboard 1) can you make certain items required fields? IE: “shop address” (so shipping calculates properly) and PayPal email?
    2) When setting up the vendor shop, instead of clicking “save” at the bottom of each tab, can the verbiage state “next” and it creates an action of SAVE AND…opening the next tab so vendors are funneled to the right place to set up the shop entirely?
    3) Can certain items in setting up the vendor shop have defaults — i.e. Manage Inventory – YES and Quantity: 1.
    4) Can you rename “shop address” to just “address.”


    Hi Michele,
    1. Yes- you can, for most fields.
    We’ll be adding functionality for this in the future, to allow admin the option to require a lot of different fields.. (it won’t be in 1.4.0 because of some issues, but this will be in one of our next updates), However, in the meantime, you can use the various filters built into WC Vendors to make certain fields required.
    Here is an article explaining how you would use a filter for fields in the product form, however, you’ll be looking into the store-settings for the fields you have mentioned: https://www.wcvendors.com/kb/make-product-fields-required/
    SO you will want to look within this core file to find the filters to use for the fields you need: wp-content/plugins/wcvendors-pro/public/forms/class-wcvendors-pro-store-form.php

    Here’s an example of a filter I made for the price field:

    2. This can likely be done- but not easily. You’d want to look into hiring a developer to look into that and provide you a quote for that custom work. We typically recommend https://codeable.io for custom work.

    3. Yes- using filters, again.

    4.Yes- again, there is a filter for the store address (in this case you’d want to also change the placeholder text).


    Thank you so much! I will reach out to a developer and see what they can do. I’m too afraid to touch PHP files so hopefully they can do that for me as well. I appreciate your prompt responses!
